“Beautiful lit mag. Download, Order, Read, Love, Treasure. We adore it!” – London Lit Project

“Delighted to see another litmag experiment with offering free, high-quality, high-design PDFs”  – Tongue Journal

“The editors of this latest incarnation of Peninsula have not only gathered contributions from some of the best writers working in the UK. They’ve packed this issue with their own reportage, some rock and roll birdwatching and even, thankfully, an interview with Cornwall’s most interesting policeman. Peninsula is a terrific literary magazine, a collector’s edition, that just happens to come from a post-grad programme.” – Craig Taylor

Peninsula 2012 has now been released in in both print and online formats.  Produced by postgraduate students at the University of Exeter, this is no ordinary magazine: Peninsula has attracted contributions from Alex Garland, Robert Macfarlane, Kathleen Jamie and James Robertson as well as featuring conversations with Iain Sinclair and Jay Griffiths. Our 2012 theme, ‘Visitation’, has collected an incredibly diverse range of writings – non-fiction pieces, short stories, interviews, essays, and poetry – on a variety of subjects from electoral candidates to paranormal encounters.

As editors, we have worked in close collaboration with Craig Taylor, author of the recent New York Times Bestseller ‘Londoners: The Days and Nights of London Now, As Told by Those Who Love It, Hate It, Live It, Left It and Long for It’, and editor of Five Dials magazine.

Peninsula has been lavishly designed and illustrated throughout, and has a strictly limited print run of 350 copies.  Each one is individually hand-numbered; these will become collectors’ items.  To request a copy or for any further enquiries, please email peninsula.litmag@gmail.com

  1. This is an impressive project–well done. What will be the impetus of the blog?

  2. Loved the magazine’s very varied content and fantastic quality of paper version i just picked up in the Owl bookshop Kentish Town and my mother (83) also very impressed. we would like to hear more – do you have plans for that?

    • Hi Al, thanks very much for your kind words. As far as future Peninsula work, nothing is in the pipeline at the moment (this began as a project for our Masters Degree), but if you drop us a line with you email address, we can let you know if we decide to push on with anything.

      I hope that’s ok.

      Best, Paul Tucker.
